Workshop CEPII‐PSE « Trade Policy Analysis »
Tuesday 6th July 2010
Conference room “Jean Monnet”, Centre d’analyse stratégique, 18 rue de Martignac, 75007 Paris

This international workshop aims at confronting recent advances in the field of trade policy analysis, using disaggregated data. Trade liberalization is at the core of reform packages carried out in several countries. Evaluating the micro‐economic effects of trade integration on economic performance and firms’ decisions becomes crucial to understand aggregate trade patterns. Works using either detailed data on protection such as tariffs and NTBs at the product level, or individual firm level data will be privileged. The workshop is composed of four sessions. Format, 2 invited papers in opening session plus 6 other papers.
